Endurance

Carbon Steel / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • This product is specially processed to produce an oxide-free surface, with no latent residues
  • Current pickup and feeding characteristics are vastly improved over conventional metal cored wires
  • Deposits weld metal with a tensile strength of 70 Ksi minimum
  • Intended for use with shielding gas in the range of 75-95% Ar/Balance CO₂
  • Exhibits 10-40% faster travel speeds than carbon steel solid wires
  • Not as susceptible to lack of fusion on heavy sections as solid wires
  • Ideal for structural welding, general fabrication, pipe welding, and welding on thin material
